Friendly family run small hotel with modern amenities, on the Indian Ocean coast just east of Dondra at Sri Lanka's southern tip. Newly opened in 2009; five en suite double bedrooms with balconies, set peacefully amongst coconut palms, about 400 paces from a safe, sandy beach. Close to Dickwella town, but shielded from the bustle of the main Colombo–Hambantota coast road.
